Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre’s (RVH) Auxiliary had another incredible month with a jackpot of $75,080 in its Community 50/50 Draw. Randy Norton of Midhurst was happy to receive his cheque and shared that he will be spending some of it on his children.
“I never expected to win. I only buy tickets because I was a former patient and I want to support the hospital,” says Norton.
With each monthly draw, the RVH Auxiliary continues to raise funds to support its latest $5 million pledge to RVH’s fundraising campaign. The first $2.5 million will be used to help with the much-needed expansion of the Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit. To date, over $550,000 in prize money has been awarded to lucky Ontario residents.
“I am so grateful for the support of our community in our fundraising efforts and, of course, I am thrilled the RVH volunteers are able to make such a big impact in supporting health care in our region. Not only do these funds make a huge difference at RVH, but winning $75,080 has a huge impact on the life of our winner as well,” says Lise McCourt, RVH Auxiliary president. “A big thank you to Wallwin Electric for the sponsorship of the August draw”.
